Thankful Thursday!!!!

Psalm 30:10-12 Hear me, Lord, and have mercy on me. Help me, O Lord.
You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing. You have taken away my clothes of mourning and clothed me with joy, that I might sing praises to you and not be silent.
O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever!!
I am thankful for God’s many blessings in my life.
I am thankful that 14 years ago the Lord gave me the privilege of giving birth too Travis.
This week was his birthday. I thank the Lord for many things when it comes to Travis. He has a very tender heart he cares deeply for people with illnesses or who are different. Travis has an amazing amount of braveness even though he thinks he is weak, not a lot of people could’ve gone through what he has at such a young age. I tell him all the time his strength come from the Lord lean on God and he will get you through anything. His smile and laughter can light up a room, he is truly my sunshine. His imagination on life is incredible, sometimes I just look at him and say WOW did he really come from me. I tell him daily how much God has truly blessed my life with Travis being apart of God creation. He has such heart for God sometimes he says he wants to be a pastor and chef. I always tell Travis to reach for the stars because all things are possible with God by our side.
I am thankful that my husband has a job especially with how the economy is right now.
I am thankful that the Lord knows our needs and finances even though my husbands health insurance is doubling. I know that God will provide the difference that will be taken out of his pay weekly.
I am thankful for my health even though, I am struggling big time right now. I just have to believe that God has a plan for all of this and I just need to be still and listen. Be ready for what lies ahead I know that God has a purpose for me. I just have to keep waiting patiently.
I am thankful for my crazy animals they make me laugh and scream at the same time. I don’t know what I would do with out my munchkins.
My Mom, I’m thankful to her that I don’t have to struggle with this alone, I can always find comfort in her presence when it comes to health issues. If anyone would know how it is to live with chronic pain and hidden illnesses my Mother is the one to talk too. I give thanks today for God’s love, mercy, comfort, and protection over my loved ones and friends.

I love reading through a Psalm each day - they always remind me to be thankful for all He has blessed us with! Oh God You alone are worthy!

Psalms. My favorite book. And I hear you about the animals. Even though my cat drives me completely crazy at times, I would feel a bit lost without her.
